As defined in Wikipedia:
"A CAPTCHA is a type of challenge-response test used in computing as an attempt to ensure that the response is generated by a person. The process usually involves one computer (a server) asking a user to complete a simple test which the computer is able to generate and grade. Because other computers are assumed to be unable to solve the CAPTCHA, any user entering a correct solution is presumed to be human."
The principle reason for using CAPTCHA images is to prevent spammers, using automated tools, (repeatedly) filling out forms on websites.
The typical CAPTCHA process means an image, with funny fonts, confusing backgrounds, and random lines or other confounding distractions, is presented to the (human) user who should be able to understand what is in the image and can answer a question about it.
Here is an example CAPTCHA used in The Dorfman Chapel's website
* Note- if you get an error message on the next

Codes have short lives and expire.
